Al Sharpton also made a powerful statement after the verdict was read:
“An atrocity, one of the worst situations that I’ve seen…We had to march to even get a trial, and then at trial when he’s exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted. This is a sad day in the country. A slap in the face to those that believe In Justice in this country.”
More details to come.
